Goodreads asked Tracy Shawn:

How do you get inspired to write?

Tracy Shawn Again, my biggest inspiration comes from the simple act of sitting down and writing. I also enjoy people watching, and will often concoct a whole story in my head about a person without ever talking to him or her. Even while driving down the street, I'll catch an interesting person with an unusual expression and that'll give me a great idea.

I have to share that my other daily inspirations come from lots of green tea, popcorn, and chocolate :)
